1. Johnson, Terri Lynne. What has faith got to do with it? Developing a theoretical model for the emerging faith-based organization: A case analysis.

Degree: PhD, Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs, 2015, Cleveland State University

In spite of the growth of faith-based organizations (FBOs) in the non-profit sector, our understanding with regard to its organizational development process still lags behind. In particularly, given the connection between faith, identity, and social capital, the study argues that an investigation of organizational identity and social capital of FBOs would provide a deeper understanding of issues related to FBO development and management. With a focus on the communication processes of multiple stakeholders, the study is an in-depth qualitative case analysis of an emerging FBO in a Midwestern Metropolitan area in the U.S. A second phase of the study applied findings to other FBOs in the same geographical area. The purpose of this study was to develop a theoretical model for the faith-based organization. The data obtained from the in-depth field interviews, organizational documents, and field notes were analyzed through a grounded theory research method. This research resulted in new findings that demonstrate connections between several bodies of literature adding to our understanding of the developmental processes of the faith-based organization. Concluding remarks suggest parallels between the faith-based nonprofit and society at large, proposing that similar practices for managing differing values and principles in our society could bring greater understanding between diverse people groups. Advisors/Committee Members: Jian, Guowei (Advisor).

2. Rosiek, Susan L. Navigating the Paradoxes of Working from Home: An Investigation into the New Communication Practices of Telework.

Degree: Master of Applied Communication Theory and Methodology, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, 2008, Cleveland State University

Many of today's organizational employees are turning to flexible work programs, such as telework, to help them balance their work and life responsibilities. Previous research indicates working from home has positive effects, but the same research reveals telework can have a negative impact on work-life balance. There are gaps in the amount and variety of theoretical development in the area of telework. The goal of this research study was to extend the scope of telework analysis beyond technology use by exploring the various tensions teleworkers encounter when working from home, learn how teleworkers alter their communication practices to deal with these tensions, and generate a grounded theory of dialectics of telework. A qualitative research method of interviews, observation, and organizational document review was used to study teleworkers at a professional services firm. The findings helped to develop the Organizational Telework Tension Model, a grounded theory of telework, which claims teleworkers have a perception of how others view them, filtering into the multiple ways they manage the four identified dialectical tensions of telework and inevitably how they communicate with colleagues. Advisors/Committee Members: Jian, Guowei (Committee Chair).
